We Care: Our proceeds to Saint Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen

As part of our company wide We Care initiative, we have completed our first round of donation drop-offs to our friends at the Saint Francis of Assisi Kitchen! With almost $700 in contributions, we were able to contribute a huge variety of non-perishable food items and some of their requested goods which included 135 pairs of men’s underwear! Some of our team members even brought in additional food and clothing on their own dime to further contribute!

Saint Francis of Assisi is a non-profit organization whose members and volunteers take the time to make sure those in need are served a free, hot, nutritious meal 365 days a year – regardless of that person’s faith.

Located in downtown Scranton, the Kitchen serves over 225 hot meals each day. Since first opening their doors in August 1978, they have served over 2.2 million meals since then! Saint Francis of Assisi also collects gently used clothing to offer at their Free Clothing Store, which is available for members of the community who cannot afford the everyday necessity.

The entirety of the Kitchen at Saint Francis of Assisi is run by volunteers and donations from the community, so they could use any contribution possible. Currently, they are in most need of nonperishable food items and gently used clothing to provide for visitors at their Free Clothing Store.

As always any contribution, big or small, is greatly appreciated! For more information on the Saint Francis of Assisi, visit their website here.
